The Irish dramatic TV series, Love/Hate, may be long concluded, but then it has sure made celebrities out of its hitherto obscure actors. One of those is Killian Scott. Although the Irish actor and writer has been on the scene for quite a while, Love/Hate became one of his most phenomenal appearances, including the drama-comedy; Calvary, further propelling him before the public eye. This post chronicles his bio including facts about his net worth.
Killian Scott’s Bio
Killian Scott was born Cillian Murphy in Kilmallock, Limerick, Ireland on July 6, 1985. Though details about his early childhood, education, parents or what they did for a living is not available, it is a known fact that alongside his brother, Eoghan Murphy and Colin Murphy, he was in the lush coastal suburbs of Sandy Mount, Dublin. Eoghan Murphy is a successful politician under the liberal-conservative and pro-European political party, Fine Gael, while Collin Murphy is a playwright.
Wondering how “Cillian” became “Killian?” For his professional career, Cillian discovered just how confusing it would be to proceed with his birth name and the reason isn’t far fetched as “Cillian Murphy” was already an existing name and a famous one at the time. Not to seem like a clone, Cillian not only replaced the “C” with a “K,” he also added a different colour to the piece, Scott, and thus went the name, Killion Scott.
Movies and TV Shows
Following his graduation from high school, Scott attended the University College Dublin where he majored in English and minored in psychology. Before proceeding to college, Killian Scott had a first love – drama. And so, after getting a formal education, the Irish-born took a further step to pursue his dreams at the London-based Drama Centre. After much training, Killian Scott graced the screens for the first time in 2007 when he appeared as Matt in the drama, Creatures of Knowledge. The following year, 2008, Scott landed another role in the low budget film, Christian Blake.
Although the film didn’t make a name, its viewers were already getting familiar with the black-haired Irish actor. Fast forward eleven years, Killian Scott’s acting career has almost made him a household name in the Irish film industry and beyond. But the specifics of all that began with his appearance as Milo Herlihy in the Irish black comedy-drama, Calvary. Calvary saw Scott star alongside big names like Brendan Gleeson, Aidan Gillen, Isaach de Bankolé, and Dylan Moran. The comedy became an instant hit, eventually grossing $16.9 million in the box office. Trailing these successes were several more features in other high-grossing movies and TV shows.
So far, the Irish actor has over 21 acting credits under his belt, some of which include, The Rise of the Bricks (2009), The Tragedy of Macbeth (2013), Good Vibrations (2013), The Rafters (2013), Black Ice (2013), 71 (2014), Traders (2015), Trespass against Us (2016), and of course, the 2018 thriller, The Commuter, in which he appeared as Dylan.
On the ‘TV Scene,’ Killian Scott is also building an incredible profile, with appearances in TV series like Love/Hate which ran from 2010 to 2014. He also appeared in Single-Handed (2010), Jack Taylor (2011-2013), Call the Midwife (2014), Siblings (2014), Ripper Street (2016), Strike (2017), and the 2017/2018 series, Damnation, in which he appeared as Seth Davenport.
The details of Killian Scott’s paycheck has never been made public knowledge and that is because he is quite yet to join the big leagues of highest paid actors, but this doesn’t mean that the Irish actor is doing badly. From the roles he’s earned over the years, the actor’s net worth has been estimated at $1 million.
Killian Scott has been quite tight-lipped about his personal life, especially the woman in his life. When it comes to women and love relationships, the Irish actor and writer confess not to be the luckiest of men and has on one occasion stated that his love life has been a flop. Be that as if may, Scott has all it takes to land his dream woman, at least physically, the slender actor boasts a height of 5 feet 10 inches which puts him well above average height and he weighs 166 lbs, not to mention his good looks.
